City of Toronto work crews have installed temporary barriers along Lakeshore Boulevard – near the site where a five-year-old boy was struck by a car – after falling into traffic while biking on the Martin Goodman Trail.
The city says permanent fencing will be erected along the stretch of road near Jameson Avenue – along with improved signage and pavement markings for cyclists and drivers.
Mayor John Tory asked city officials to conduct a safety review of Toronto’s approximately 300 km network of multi-use trails – after a car struck Xavier Morgan when he lost control of his bike last week.
The group “Respect For Cyclists” is organizing a memorial bike ride Saturday for Xavier Morgan – starting at Spadina and Bloor at 10am – and ending at the Canadian Legion on Lakeshore Boulevard West.
